Bee Hive Removal Santa Barbara

These bees had found a great archway over a driveway - covered with bougainvillea in full bloom. The bougainvillea was trained over the archway and looked great... the problem was that the vines became so large and heavy over time they pulled the decorative trim off the stucco wall.  Once the trim was off, the bees had a great space to move into.  The owner did not want to open up the stucco to remove the complete hive so I opted for the "Bait Hive" removal method.

Bee Hive Removal Santa Barbara

Just completed a bait hive project - live bee removal. The hive was inside the wall of a garden enclosure.  This bait hive project was a bit of a challenge.
What is that?  Small TBH Nuc box that has Lang. Med. Super
I sealed up both sides and had the exit cone at the main entrance/exit of the hive. It was very difficult to get a good seal around the air-conditioning plumbing. I had to keep checking every few days until I was sure the bees hadn't found another way back into the original hive. After pruning a bush back, I was able to set the bait hive right next to the exit cone.
